John Travolta Plays The Teflon Don In Gotti Trailer

John Travolta walks the walk and talks the talk in the first trailer for the biopic Gotti.

The trailer debuted on Good Morning America, and it offers our best look at Travolta as the late John Gotti, head of the notorious Gambino crime family in New York. 

Directed by Entourage star Kevin Connolly, the movie follows Gotti's life over the course of three decades, chronicling his rise to the top of the criminal underworld. Travolta's real-life wife Kelly Preston plays Gotti's wife Victoria, and the film especially focuses on their relationship.

Travolta told ABC News that he got into character by borrowing some of Gotti's actual clothes during filming. "I got to wear his jewelry," he said. "In several of the scenes, I'm wearing his real ties." Gotti's son John Gotti Jr. was a key adviser for the movie and also frequently visited the set.

Look for the movie in theaters on Dec. 15. Meanwhile, take a look at some actors who underwent intense facial transformations for a role.
